An area of Dubai’s Al Khail Road will be extended to incorporate another path as a major aspect of trying to handle congested traffic.
The move is one of the five improvements planned to the city roads.
The movement arrangements incorporate adding one lane to Al Khail Road toward Sharjah in the territory between Meydan Road before Dubai Mall Bridge, consequently adding a fourth lane to Al Khail Road. This quick solution will expand the limit of this segment of Al Khail Road by 1,800 vehicles for every hour. Arrangements incorporate broadening the exit at the crossing point of Hessa and Al Khail Road to make it two paths rather than one and as needs are to facilitate the present bottleneck at that site.
Another lane would be added to the collector road parallel to Al Khail Road at the crossing point with Hessa Road inbound from the Sheik Zayed Road going to Sharjah. This arrangement would increase the capacity of the road from 1,500 vehicles for every hour to 3,000 vehicles for each hour, enhancing the movement stream toward that path.
Along with the 12-lane Sheikh Zayed Road, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road, and Emirates Road, Al Khail is one of the city’s busiest streets in the area and we can say that there is daily congestions are typical, and so are the accidents.
